There is a Small 11mm Plug on the bottom of the transmission if your looking towards the back of the car when your under it its on the left side of the transmission its a small bolt start your car and take that out if transmission pours out its full if not fill it up till it starts coming out.

Isn't there a transmission dipstick? I have an 06 that has a ATF dipstick and one for the oil.
